A simple mistake. That’s what
we all thought it was. A mistake that could have blown up most of the west coast. Before
the truth came out. That it wasn’t a mistake, rather a deliberate act of sabotage.
We’ve all seen those old movies
about the hot line between Washington and Moscow. But this time, it was for real. And
it took Seaview and Harry to defuse the volatile situation. Seaview, to get to the coordinates of the downed satellite armed
with a warhead. And Harry, to disarm the thing.
What irks me now, that
it’s been over awhile, is that it’s still ‘politically incorrect’ to let anyone (outside of a few
special people in Washington) know how close we came to a really big boom. And that Harry, more than anyone, is responsible
for preventing it.
It doesn’t seem to bother him,
though. And says it was all a team effort. Be that as it may, you’d think he’d at least have gotten a Presidential citation.
